Speedy extends B&Q partnership

Speedy and B&Q have formally extended their partnership in which the hirer has in-store outlets within the DIY chain’s locations. 

The roll-out follows a successful trial in 16 B&Q stores, with a further 23 locations throughout the country scheduled to open by January.

Customers have access to 350 of Speedy’s most popular products, utilising the company’s national four-hour delivery promise. 

Speedy reports rising demand from B&Q customers since the start of the trial last summer, and adds that the service offers sustainability advantages, since users can hire tools that might otherwise be purchased and used only a few times.

The hirer’s existing customers will also benefit from being able to use the new trade counters seven days a week to order and collect products.
